I went in here to see what they had back during my college days when I used to smoke a little. This place has got some real character. You walk in and it smells delicious. Pleasant tobacco aroma wafts through the air and wood pipes and decorative pieces give the place a cabin feel. They have all sorts of hard to find cigarettes and everything you'll need to roll your own. I went here and bought tobacco to roll myself and smoke, I don't remember what it was exactly, but it is one of my more pleasant memories from college.
I was in a league here and I have to say, this is one of the cleanest, most modern looking, beautiful bowling alleys I have ever seen. It is just glistening. Two sides, so there are plenty of alleys, I went to bowl here and one the high score for the season and they provided me with a little glass trophy that I have to this day. It was a nice touch. The prices are not the best, but they are decent. I say if you enjoy bowling, this is one of the nicest alleys you will come across. Even their shoes are unique... nice white shoes with a blue stripe, not the normal alley clown red and blue shoes.
My father sees this cardiologist near Koreatown. He is highly respected and well known throughout the Korean-American community. His hospital is not that big, but a lot of people (particularly elder) come through. He knows what he is doing, but he really does tend to rush you through any intake and rush you out after he decides what you'll need to do. I suppose a lot of physicians do these days, but that's the reason that, despite his being a good doctor, I don't find myself jumping at the opportunity to go to him when I am in need of a doctor.
They have great prices on white lab coats and a large number of them. Even still, I had to settle for one that has the buttons on the wrong side (denoting male/female) because it was the best fit and looked/felt the best. No one will notice, so I don't mind, but I wish they had more selection. Most of them are just around a circle rack, so you'll be rummaging to find what you need. It's a big place, lotsa stuff, and if you go to their website, you can download a 10% off coupon for when you go. The people are really nice there, too.
go after 9pm and you can bowl for $2 a game. $2!!!! But they close at 11 so they won't let you wear your arm out too much. This is an older alley, it's not all new or spic and span like the other alley in Torrance, but these are very decent alleys (they seem a little more narrow and longer but I bowl BETTER here! So I just end up feeling more exact and skilled). The price is right. If you don't have shoes, invest in them. at about $25, you go bowling about 5 or 6 times and they've already paid for themselves. And you have bowling shoes.
Settled into the hills just north of Hollywood Blvd, you get a spectacular view of Los Angeles from the upper seating areas. I like to try and grab one dollar tickets and enjoy a night of beautiful music under the stars. The acoustics are such that anywhere you sit, even outdoors, it sounds great. And the atmosphere is unbeatable. Out in nature, with music.. of course it's only during the summer, and LA summer nights can be beautiful. Romantic, of course. I love this place.
I used to go to this place and only this place a few years ago when I was out in Los Angeles a lot more. It's a small place off the main road (next to Western Ave in the heart of Koreatown) and not the most inviting place. There is a large black gate locked with a padlock, but if you rap on it and the Korean lady sytlist inside recognizes you, she opens up and provides a great haircut, for only 8 dollars there, and I wouldn't be surprised if that were still the price now. She did a great job with my hair and shampoo'd and conditioned, too. I really like this place. While waiting, there are plenty of sofas and a television to watch.
This place has a lot of character. You walk in and it's kind of like entering the wild west or the 50s, or some combination of both. The people have a lot of character, too. Coming here is like having an adventure. And as a student, the $12 rate is very doable. The cut is is definitely acceptable, and it's entering the rather large area that makes this place a more memorable barber shop.
They charged 10 bucks for a haircut, which is a great price in the village, but they cut my hair like they were charging me that much, too. It was a very brief cut, I felt like I was in and out and there wasn't anything that nice that happened in between. The cut was not terrible but it wasn't that great of a cut either.
The people here are very nice. For whatever reason (maybe I was worried about my dog), I couldn't understand what they said when they asked for a sample of feces... scat.... and finally it hit me when they said "poo!" They were very nice about it. The veterinarians are caring and they keep the place looking nice because walking into the little corner animal hospital there is comforting. They took care of her worms and later a skin condition. I don't have my dog anymore (we had to give her way) but if I did, I would have no problem taking her back here.
